Tips to help your family sit less and move more

We’ve got a whole library of practical tips to help you and your family get moving! Keep it fun by trying out some of our challenges, too.


  • Make sure you get to put your feet up at some point too! Rest is also important to recovery, particularly if you are on your feet or on the go all day every day.

  • Keeping active and doing vigorous physical activity - especially something that makes you huff and puff a bit - has great health benefits. Often kids get this exercise at school, but it's still important to do more activity when at home.

  • Once you've started and you're being active on a regular basis, you'll find it gets easier.

  • Put active family time in your diary. Visit playgrounds, parks, nature reserves, or ovals. Track how much time you are spending being active on our Habit tracker.

  • Making your own playdough isn't just great, squishy fun for the kids; it helps develop their fine motor skills. Try this playdough recipe.
